    Even with its overly ambitious new 'Off The Ball' interface the FIFA series is still a long way from capturing the true essence of the beautiful game. [Dec 2003, p.127]
  2. An average game that lacks the spirit of the sport.
  3. If they had spent a tenth of the effort they made on their graphics and presentation on the gameplay instead, would we have a game that was comparable to the "Winning Eleven" series?

Almost perfect except for no world cup, the controls are a bit nonresponsive at times, and there is no advantage to using the special moves. But those are nitpicking. This game is on par with or better than Winning Eleven (my vote is its better). Full Review »
